Pattaya’s most popular beach offers soft sands sweeping from Pattaya Nuea to Walking Street, a good range of water sports and easy access to the attractions of Central Pattaya and Beach Road including the entertainment and shopping opportunities of Central Festival Pattaya Beach. Pattaya Beach is a great spot to settle into for a fun beachfront day.
Koh Lan, also known as Coral Island, and neighbouring Koh Sak, are popular destinations for when you’d like to try some snorkelling and scuba diving. A short motorbike ride from the pier through hilly terrain to the west coast will take you to the clear waters of Samae Beach and Tien Beach. And it's very easy to get here; the departure pier from which ferries cross to Koh Lan is located within 10 minutes from the hotel.
Pattaya Floating Market
About 20 minutes away from the hotel by road, Pattaya Floating Market makes for an inviting change of pace, with watery byways and canals to explore, offering you glimpses of a bygone lifestyle and of course the chance to savour freshly-cooked Thai delicacies.
Renowned for its remarkable concentration of over 20 quality golf courses, all easily accessible from the resort town, Pattaya is the perfect place to tee off in style. Venue of several US LPGA events, the Old Course and Plantation Course at Siam Country Club are must-try.

Other highly popular golf courses include the Pete Dye-designed Khao Kheow Golf Club and Laem Chabang International Country Club designed by Jack Nickaus, both featuring 27 holes. Set on a wooded, rolling terrain nearby Jomtien, and with views over the Gulf of Thailand, the Phoenix Gold Golf & Country Club has three nines designed by Dennis Griffiths. Last but not least, St Andrews 2000 Golf Club in Rayong is rated as one of the region’s most interesting golf courses.
Central Festival Pattaya Beach
Approximately 15 minutes away from the hotel by road, Central Festival Pattaya Beach shopping and lifestyle centre makes for an ideal break from beach and water activities.
